Post #1189 – The Districts

The Districts poster Joe Castro

Stoked to work with Pennsylvania band The Districts on some posters for their upcoming Fall 2015 US tour.  The first one is this 2 color silkscreen gig poster, printed on 100lb cover French paper and featuring my collage 30 Days. These will be for sale at the bands merch table so pick one up when they roll through your town because once they’re gone, they’re gone. Check the tour dates here.

I also designed these promo posters for the tour, which feature my collage “The Jackal” on them – look for these at venues and record stores around the country.

Post #1186 – Delta Spirit gigposter

Delta Spirit silkscreen poster Joe Castro

I was honored to be asked to design this limited edition gig poster for Delta Spirit’s recent show at the World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, PA.  It’s a 2 color screen print on 100# Nightshift Blue French paper and measures 16″ x 25″.  The band was planning on bringing up various Philadelphia musicians onstage to jam on a few songs, which reminded me of the film,  The Last Waltz so I decided to pay homage to by incorporating the same font style from the film poster into the design. These were originally only available at the bands merch table – only 90 total were produced – but I have a very small quantity for sale right now in the store. Get one before they’re gone.

Post #1181 – 60 Americans

60 Americans group show

I’m excited to be returning to NYC this month as part of the 60 Americans group show, which opens this Thursday May 21 at Elga Wimmer PPC in Manhattan (526 West 26th Street #310 in Chelsea).  As the title suggests, the show features 60 artists handpicked by co-curators Terrence Sanders, Noah Becker and Alexander Venet, and runs from May 21-June 14th.  If you’re in town, the opening is from 6-9pm, with a special performance by Hayoon Jay Lee at 7:30pm, so please stop on by and say hello. You can also preview the show online.

About the show:
60 Americans’ is a response to the ill-gotten gains of flipper based collectors, money corrupted and trend obsessed gallerists, shopping mall (puppy mill/factory) inspired art fairs, nepotism and favoritism of the made men and women of fast track MFA programs in America. This exhibition will offer an alternative perspective on what’s arguably relevant and important in the current landscape of American contemporary art.
